hey guys i bought some transformers on ebay and then wondered about knock offs and read lots of different stuff about the grey card around box windows and transformers writing in white and black on box and things as a result im not sure if i have a genuine g1 prime? it does say commerative
i got this optimus prime for £23 which seemed amazing as the description states thats its mint in box and never been opened while elsewhere on ebay theres g1 primes going for £50 and £60 and higher with roller missing and fists and wheels and things missing so im wondering was i lucky? and is this real?
i dont know much about transformers bar what i remember from books and cartoons as a kid
this is the optimus prime pic and ill add more if needed when it arrives
i noticed his smoke stacks are kinda stumpy compared to the old battered prime i have already but sure i read this was a reissue thing?
and i got this guy which i assumed was an alternate version of soundwave but from what i gather online is that after transformers movie the cartoon series carried on in japan and soundwave and blaster fought each other to the death and somehow became soundblaster and twincast???
so is this guy still soundwave like kinda reborn like galvatron was or is soundblaster a different character?
i read things online but its confusing as it seems to differ so thought id ask you guys
anyway here he is and again seems strange as i won him on ebay for £23.57 just 57 pence more than a sealed optimus cost
i also read that soundblaster ws recreated by some sort of time traveling prime to take his place and hes not really a decepticon or autobot? but why then has he got decepticon logos for ravage and laserbeak?
its quite confusing
